Candace and Vincent
How We Met
Vince and I met through friends in college. We had became friends and would hang out as a group for a while. I fell in love with Vince when he took time out of his own studying for a huge exam to help me learn something. I could see his intelligence instantly and was attracted to him then. I always say that “I loved him first”, because I did! It took a few months for him to ask me out, and we have been together since!
How He Asked
My sister was coming in town and decided to plan a “girls day” with my best friends, sister, and sister in law. I actually didn’t want to go that day since I had previously planned to spend the day with Vince. When I told Vince about the planned girls day, he told me to go since he actually made different plans as well. Little did I know, the plans were for us to get engaged! We went to the Escape Room in Livonia, Michigan. We had been wanting to do something fun and different. While in the room, I was very involved and got very excited when we were finding clues.
The final step was to find the perfect combination of numbers to escape. It took me a few tries but we finally figured out the perfect combination. As I opened the door from pure excitement of cracking the code, I saw Vince standing there with flowers and a huge smile on his face! I was in complete shock and could not believe what was about to happen! He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
Of course I said yes! This was the happiest day of my life, the love of my life asked me to be his wife! We had been dating for six years and this was such a perfect time for us!
Our wedding is on May 13, 2017 and I couldn’t be happier.
